Dog-Friendly Beaches and Parks in Newport Beach

Newport Beach offers several pet-friendly hikes and parks for you to spend time outdoors while exploring the great outdoors with your furry friend. You and your pet can indulge in a brisk walk, a longer run, or a fun game of fetch with these four local options below.

Pets aren’t allowed on Newport beaches during peak hours, but you can take your leashed dog onto the beach before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. As always, ensure your dog remains on a leash when required and you are properly ridding of their waste.
